The Best Workout Music Of 2010: Beyond Flo Rida and Ke$ha

January 24, 2011 · 2 comments

I was recently sent a press release by Chris Lawton from Run Hundred, that listed the best workout tracks of 2010. Their 75,000 voters selected these hits as the winners:

  1. Flo Rida – Club Can’t Handle Me (Feat. David Guetta)
  2. Lady GaGa – Bad Romance (Starsmith Remix)
  3. Ke$ha – We R Who We R
  4. R.I.O. – After The Love
  5. Pitbull & Akon – Shut It Down
  6. Taio Cruz & Ludacris – Break Your Heart (Mixin Marc & Tony Svejda Radio Edit)
  7. Black Eyed Peas – Rock That Body (Chris Lake Remix)
  8. Yolanda Be Cool & Dcup – We No Speak Americano
  9. Shiny Toy Guns – Major Tom
  10. Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina – Stereo Love

Now I’ll be honest, none of these songs appear on my Sansa Clip as I am an old traditionalist. Billy Idol is probably the best workout music you’ll find there.

But with one teenager and a 12-year old who acts like a teenager in the house I get my share of hearing today’s music and this is a pretty good sampling. Each of the links has a sample you can play to hear for yourself whether you like the song or not, and I went through and click on each one to hear if my speculation was correct and it was - almost every one of these songs features that savior to poor vocal cords everywhere - the Auto-Tune. I wonder how long that trend is going to last. Much too long I fear. Just like a blog can turn any asspiring writer into a journalist so too can Auto-Tune turn any kid in his basement into the next P-Diddy.

Oh well, as long as the beat gets you working out!

Run Hundred is the web’s most heavily trafficked workout music site. Visitors can sample songs from both Top 40 and college radio. They can also browse the song selections by genre, tempo, and era—to find the music that best fits with their particular workout routine. The site was started by Chris Lawhorn—the resident DJ at Marie Claire and workout music columnist for Men’s Journal.
